Bloomfield House itself is a significant example of Georgian architecture, and has retained many of its stunning original features. These features have been carefully restored to create a rare opportunity to buy a historically noted building in a most convenient location.
The history of Bloomfield House is rich and varied. This stunning house was built in the late 18th century by William Saurin, a barrister by profession and the MP for Blessington who was a high-profile opponent of the Union of Ireland with Britain. In 1802, Saurin sold Bloomfield House to Dr Robert Emmet, the father of famous Irish nationalist Robert Emmet, who led a rebellion against British rule in 1803. It is believed that the Emmet family made substantial changes to the house after they bought it, most notably creating a large room to the right of the entrance hall, reflecting the fashion of the time for large ballrooms.
